Tom Knox is to Mason, as Suciu is to Milton.
i disagree. mason is a lot more varied and interesting than milton. i see where youíre coming from, but milton didnít do nearly as many different tricks as milton does in each part

If I had a vote it would be for Miles Silvas. Been a big fan for a long time. Don't care about the fits, he's next level on huge stairs and rails. SS BS lip Hollywood, SS Heel BS lip brick town, SS BS heel wallenberg while still crushing ledges.

Hate him or not (I mean his after land celebrations make bastainís look like nothing but this is Isnít personality of the year,) all of this was in 2020 and heís skating a lot of jaws caliber stuff a lot but doing tricks other than kickflip melons.

That back heel down the big 7-8 block/stair or first try was nuts.


Also has a mean ledge game. Rick flip to switch fs nose/fakie back tail on a decently high ledge? Tell me mason could could do that?



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=So1cDH40M3I&t=317s







Either way it should be Tom Knox but I am just saying that there are a lot of dudes that ripped in 2020 that most people donít even think of because it isnít Mason.

The first clip in the Joslin video is a bs 360 kickflip from a video that was released two years ago, so I pressed pause after that. I do not think he is a contender this year, considering he's had better years footage-output wise that did not garner him the win.

I personally want Mason to win. Tom Knox Suciu'd it this year and I would also be content if he won. Franky Vilanni should be right up there in conversation and Miles Silvas rounds out the top 4. Considering the pandemic made me think we'd get less footage this year, I'm fucking stoked on how much we ended up getting.

Meant that the tasteful skater of the year is going to get beat out by the Thrasher SOTY sent from central casting.

... with all due respect to Milton, and Mason.

No but for real mason had a great year. He Skates powerful but to me his part miss some nbds at spots i will remember. If im being honest i watched all 4 parts and can barely remember anything even if it was the best we saw this year.

ALSO ADD HYUN KUMMER AKA VERSACE PLUG his parts are amazing and far more ambitious than anything sombody like kader did this year.
Hes not top tier AM because he lives in germany.
We saw that happen to mizurov and lem, glad he has a different approach to it and doesnt play SE GERMAN with some Bratwurst boards like Willow on almost

Mason had 5 parts, a Thrasher cover and I think a few other ads in the mag throughout the year. Although not this year obviously but I feel his KOTR affiliation gives him an edge too.

Big fan of Mason but Iíd vote Knox. I feel like for a few years now skating shifted from biggest and gnarliest to more creativity, style, and approach and I think SOTY would feel more relevant if it were to reflect that.

Mason had 2 full parts and a couple of shorter parts, and yet none of them were a part of a full length. Weird times.

Trying to make a case for Chris Joslin by listing tricks he has done is not the energy we need in 2020.

Yíall sleep on clive

I agree. My vote is Clive Dixon. Always throws down.

Transworld Skate and Create with the Birdhouse crew was sick, his Real Street part ripped, 50-50 at El Toro, and his Creep video.  Dude is sicker than he gets credit for.

Not to mention the stuff he did in 2019 like the Thrasher cover he got and noseblunting Staples Center.

I'm on the Knox train for the simple reason that his choice of spots is unique and his trick selection maximizes the spot's potential.
